Concordia's Elementary Music Program

If you’ve heard one of Concordia’s elementary school concerts, you’ll know Music Teacher Ms. Martha Seibel has our students performing at a very high level, learning and having fun in the process.

“I like learning songs to perform because Ms. Seibel gives us a song and we practice it together over and over, and we get better at music,” said Linh (G1), adding, “Our class has some instruments and we pass them around - my favorite was a glockenspiel.”

“I want kids to have fun and work together, to “see” music, interact and create,” said Ms. Seibel. “Some parts in the day we are individually focused. Music class can be different because we do something together and fun, which can be a great thing for kids in the middle of the day.”

“We break things down into steps, starting with the most basic thing, and then add something new and change it slightly. It starts very simple but when you add it becomes very complex.

“Now the kids are getting ready for concerts, taking the musical information they’ve been gathering all year and making choices about what instrument they’ll play, what rhythm, being independent about what they’ll do.”

Concordia AP Biology students visited the Department of Environmental Biotechnology at Vietnam’s University of Science and Technology and received hands-on lab experience, preparing DCR samples of bacteria from oil pollutants found in water and preparing DCR samples to replicate DNA.

They placed the samples in 25 microliter micro test tubes, then placed the samples in a centrifuge and finally an electrophoresis machine to test the bacteria DNA.

Grade 2 & High School Choir Choral Share

Music is a language unto itself and our Grade 2 students experienced this first hand while spending time with the Concordia high school choir members.

The younger students composed their own songs in a previous class and when shared, the high school students were able to read the music and sing the original compositions. The group then created variations on the songs and eventually came together to sing in a three-part harmony as a group. The classroom buzzed with the wonderful music of the mixed group!

Physics Focus

“I begin every new semester by telling my students that physics is math but with toys.  On average, 80% of our Physics class is hands-on,” shared HS Physics and Math teacher Mr. Whitehead.

True to this word, Concordia’s high school Astronomy and Physics classes put Einstein's representation of gravity to the test by recreating a real-life model that showed how matter bends space time.  This demonstrated how planets and their moons travel in a straight line but the space itself is actually curved, naturally leading to the formation of solar systems.

“Physics is often very theory heavy and so putting these theories in action makes it easier to understand and the science come alive,” said Thuan (Grade 11).

Grade 2 Writing Celebration- Graphic Novels

Grade 2 students in Ms. Shih’s class wrote graphic novels, and presented their work to both schoolmates and parents.

“I love Ms. Lubaton and I love tigers, so I wrote about Ms. Lubaton going to the zoo,” said Kinsley. “I liked using the words ‘brave’ and ‘helpful’, so people understand the story.”

“I wrote about my friend Ye Eun making friends with a small pencil, because we use pencils to write stories,” said Youie, adding, “I liked drawing Ye Eun smiling.”

Students were asked to draw graphic novels using facial expressions and dialogue to develop their characters, create problems and show how they were solved, and give their stories a happy ending.

First LEED Certified Green Campus in Vietnam

We are very excited to announce Concordia as the first school in Vietnam to achieve LEED Silver status. Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification is a globally recognized symbol of sustainability achievement and the most widely used green building rating system in the world.

Being a global citizen is a core value at Concordia, so we are very proud to be the only school - and one of only a handful of buildings in Vietnam - to be called a “Green” building.

University Admissions Process

Concordia International School Hanoi enjoys an excellent reputation with top U.S. and global universities. At Concordia, we work with each individual student to assist him or her during the university admissions process helping each find the best fit. Our college counseling office advises students, on when to take exams and what exams are needed, financial considerations/scholarship applications, writing essays, developing activities lists and exploring career options.

We are early in the application process for the U.S., where most of our students are planning to attend university.  Most of our students chose to apply “Regular Decision” meaning they submitted their applications on January 1st and, we are now waiting to hear the decisions. For most universities, acceptance decisions will come between March 15th and April 15th. A few students chose to apply “Early Action” meaning they can apply early and get a response from the university early, but have until the May 1 deadline to consider with their families which university will be their final choice. Many students chose not to apply “Early Decision” (ED) meaning that they apply early, and hear back early, However if they apply ED and are accepted, they must attend that university. This option is good for students that have one dream school.

We will keep you informed of the universities to which our graduates have been accepted as we begin to hear back from the majority of schools.

Concordia Academics- Test Scores

Concordia prides ourselves on elite academics.  The Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) and the SAT and PSAT results, are strong indicators which chart our academic success.

The MAP test is taken by most international schools in the world, as well as some Vietnamese schools.  As the name indicates, it is used to measure a school’s overall academic progress.

As these comparative tables show, Concordia consistently tests far above the Hanoi average in the MAP.

MAP results also help us identify specific areas, class by class and student by student, where we are excelling and areas in which we can improve, making it an excellent curriculum tool for shaping Concordia’s overall learning strategies.

Concordia students who have taken the SAT exam have scored exceptionally well compared to global averages.
